Using Leftovers

I seem to have no problem coming up with easy keto meals, but  when it comes to using leftovers, this is where I tend to get stumped.

Sure I could have my keto leftovers for lunch the next day, but because I intermittent fast often, most days I just end up skipping lunch.

Plus its’ not always practical to take the night before’s leftovers to work.

What I usually need more of, is recipes that can be repurposed into another meal the next day easily.

Since being in ketosis our appetite has greatly reduced and keto leftovers are bound to happen often.

In the past when I would create recipes like my batch of keto chicken chili, or my easy keto chili, I would either end up freezing the leftovers, or eating the same exact meal two days in a row.

Dont get me wrong, I have no problem eating leftovers the next day, but sometimes I really prefer to change things up.


Because this girl gets bored with her food rather quickly.

Am I the only one that enjoys NEW keto recipes?

This is where a recipe like my keto chicken chili cornbread casserole fits in nicely. Because it can use leftover keto chili as the base of the recipe.

I already have a recipe that uses a “cornbread” topping, it’s my Keto Tamale Pie.

But don’t freakout, because no cornmeal is used in this recipe. Remember you’re reading a low carb keto blog.

The cornbread topping is made with coconut flour and it’s very low in carbs.

My keto tamale pie is a recipe I purpose to make the day after I’ve made my easy keto chili,for the same reason I created this keto chicken chili cornbread casserole.

Favorite Keto Hack

Experience the power of ketones with keto//OS

There are times that our low carb keto lifestyle can use a little assistance. When even great keto recipes just isn’t enough.

Especially when you are embarking on a keto diet for the first time or hit a plateau that doesn’t want to budge.

This is when we recommend give exogenous ketones a try. It’s a tool to that can boost your ketone levels naturally and effectively.

Don’t take this as an excuse to cheat or to be sloppy with your keto diet.

Because it is not a replacement for doing well-formulated ketogenic diet, but simply a tool to train your body to use ketones as fuel.

Keto//OS  is the brand of exogenous ketones we use and what we’ve decided to share because it frankly works so well.  Not to mention that they offer the best tasting ketones.

If you are not familiar with this form of supplementation, I encourage you to watch this quick 4 minute explainer video and to read more about ketosis and it’s benefits. 

In this post I go into detail about being in ketosis and why I feel it’s beneficial to do so quickly.

Perhaps what you need is a keto challenge to get you closer to your goals. The  Keto reboot  is a 60 hour program that can help you reach your ketosis faster by combining intermittent fasting with ketone supplementation.  Read more about the Keto Reboot here.

Ketone Testing

If you are wanting to do a keto diet effectively, don’t forget to test your ketone levels. Although ketone strips work well initially, the Gold standard is the blood ketone test.

This test is taken just like the glucose test that diabetics use to track their sugar levels.

After 10 seconds the ketone meter will give you an accurate reading. Testing is not necessary in order to do a ketogenic diet, but it can serve as a powerful tool to track your ketone levels and help you see your ketosis progress.
